You’ll find Le Remusat Brasserie at 36 Rue de Remusat a minute or so’s stroll down the road from the Capitole in the centre of Toulouse. It’s filled with prehistoric mockwood, formica tables, faded art deco chairs, red plastic panelling and four chandeliers which look like eight as the room is something of a hall of mirrors. Le Remusat is exceedingly popular pre-office hours for coffee and breakfast – there’s a set deal of hot drink, orange juice, croissant, bread, butter and jam for €4.50
There are plenty of pastries and crepes on offer, a selection of alcohol – including ‘Grog Maison’ for €6.20 – and tonnes of tea – this is a Salon de Thé after all. The manager/waiter commands the scene from the bar area at the centre rear. I can only describe the service as ‘lived in’. Even the waiter’s complexion resembles formica.
There are big front windows, so it’s a pretty good people watching cafe and there’s an outdoor seating area. The coffee will set you back €1.50. It’s black, it’s hot. It’s good. It’s coffee. Coffee’s always good in France. The comfy kitsch corner seat area is the non-smoking zone. Check out the seats, very sharp. Music on this visit featured Angie by the Rolling Stones and the French version of However Much by Françoise Hardy which I like an awful lot, so here it is piped via youtube below. And here are some more pics.
